Since the release of Windows Phone 7 a lot of users have been frustrated with the lack of copy and paste functionality, last week Microsoft rolled out an update to prepare all WP7 smartphones for a major update, now we have seen the copy and paste function in action, which surely must mean that Microsoft plan to roll out a major update pretty soon.
Recently Engadget got some hands-on time with the HTC Arrive aka the HTC 7 Pro, this handset must have an updated version of Windows Phone 7 as it features copy and paste, we have embedded the video at the end of this post, it looks pretty easy to use, however there is no way of multiple pasting, is this an issue for you?
Exactly when other WP7 handsets will receive an update which brings the copy and paste functionality is unknown, the HTC Arrive will become available from Sprint on March 20th, we presume it will ship with the version of WP7 seen in this video, perhaps this means that an update will be rolled out to all WP7 smartphones at a similar time.
As we hear more about the date of a Windows Phone 7 update we will keep you posted, hopefully it won’t be too long, but we cannot say anything just yet.
Do you like the look of the copy and paste feature in the video?
